In this post-steroid era, no position in baseball has more power hitters than first base. There are 15 players with a legitimate shot at hitting 30 home runs for the season. If your team does not have one of those players after the March draft, you'll have a difficult time winning the home run and RBI categories on a week-to-week basis.
Miguel Cabrera is a legitimate MVP candidate. He will likely lead the league in RBI, and on-base percentage with fewer than 100 strikeouts. Albert Pujols won't reach base quite as often but he can steal 15 bases, which is very rare for a power hitter, and has an unbelievably low strikeout rate. Prince Fielder, Adrian Gonzalez, Mark Teixeira and Joey Votto all have higher strikeout rates than Cabrera and Pujols but have similar power numbers.
Nikhil Dinesh has Fielder in the first tier and Paul Konerko in this second tier. Given the lack of overall talent on the Vicious Fishes, it could make sense for Nikhil to keep both. That's the potential for 60 home runs and 220 RBI from two players. Michael Morse and Eric Hosmer are young and should improve over the next few years. Their youth and the possibility of a high ceiling over the next few years makes them intriguing prospects as keepers. Lance Berkman, Kendrys Morales and Justin Morneau are a trio of veterans with injury history. The risk may be too high as keepers but if they stay healthy all three have All-Star potential.
